I grew up in Brooklyn and came back for a visit. Manhattan hotel prices were really outrageous so I decided to stay in Brooklyn, saving me major cash. We stayed for a week. The best reason to stay here is that it's a very good value and it is literally two blocks from the 36th street train station. You can catch express and local trains which was very convenient. About 15-20 minutes and you're in Manhattan.
The hotel is new-ish and very clean but nothing fancy in terms of amenities. We asked and were given a non-smoking room but the floor (2nd) hallways reeked of smoke. Hey, as long as it's not in my room, it is fine. The bed was surprisingly very comfortable! The rooms and bathroom are small but workable. There's a little closet, nice t.v., iron, hair dryer, fridge. The breakfast was a nice option; we only ate breakfast once and it was satisfactory (waffles, toast, cereal, coffee, yogurt, etc).
There are some concerns about the neighborhood from the other reviewers but I did not find it a problem as long as you keep your wits about you, i.e., common sense. We usually went back to the hotel at about 10-11pm and it was fine. Beats paying double and getting bed bugs in Manhattan!
